Bouchery in Brussels: The Prettiest Restaurant in Belgium?

February 15, 2016

Haute cuisine meets high minimalism at Bouchery in Brussels, a low-key temple of gastronomy helmed by Damien Bouchery, who was named the city’s best young chef in 2014 by Gault Millau. Bouchery and his partner, Benedicte Bantuelle, describe their restaurant as “the fruit of a collaboration between a chef and a culinary art director, who both have respect for beautiful products.” The interiors are spare and simple; white-washed walls, rows of Wegner Wishbone chairs, and a dash of color via a row of mint-green Verner Panton lights. For more info, go to Restaurant Bouchery.
